Part 5
Fiction Tips and the Process
In this part, you learn about what makes a strong fiction submission and what should be included in your proposal pitch. You also find what you need to know to make a clear-headed decision about whether to submit your proposal through an agent, submit it directly to a publisher, or self-publish—and in any of these cases, how to find a good fit for your personality, your needs, and your book. Finally, what should you do while you are waiting for a decision? We show you how to keep on building your platform and strengthening your writing career.
